Protecting the Wild: Parks and Wilderness, the Foundation for Conservation
Edited by George Wuerthner, Eileen Crist, and Tom Butler
Protecting the Wild offers a spirited argument for the robust protection of the natural world. In it, experts from five continents, including several Y2Y founders, reaffirm that parks, wilderness areas and other reserves are an indispensable—albeit insufficient—means to sustain species, subspecies, key habitats, ecological processes, and evolutionary potential. Using case studies from around the globe, they present evidence that terrestrial and marine protected areas are crucial for biodiversity and human well-being alike, vital to countering anthropogenic extinctions and climate change.
